  EastEnders' Phil and Lisa split in real life
Updated 28 March 2003, 13.20
Phil and Lisa are in the middle of a dramatic storyline in the soap
EastEnders stars Steve McFadden and Lucy Benjamin have split up after three years together.

They play rowing ex-lovers Phil Mitchell and Lisa Shaw on the soap.

It comes at a strange time for the pair as their on-screen characters are caught up in a dramatic storyline.

Still friends

Lisa's gone missing in Portugal and Phil's suspected of killing her so he can take their daughter, Louise.

Phil and Lisa have had some emotional moments on  EastEnders
But in real life, the pair had been together for a long time, after meeting on the soap.

Their agents said they're still friends, but the actors themselves refuse to talk about what's happened.

Quitting the show

But they have been seen having huge rows in public over the last couple of years, which has often been reported in the papers.

Lucy Benjamin is about to leave EastEnders, and Steve McFadden is taking a year out from the soap in the autumn.
